I went to Dr. Dixit and he fixed my problem. He walked me through the aftercare and answered all my questions. I love the app he uses because I get answers from the doctor and I don’t have to wait for a return call. I will only use Dr. Dixit. I trust him and he made the pain go away.
Scottsboro, AL |
Dr Dixit has always been quick to respond to any questions I have had through the app and he has been very helpful.
Owens Cross Roads, AL |
My experience with Dr. Dixit is extremely positive. He was confident and upfront about providing information with regards to my upcoming surgery which eased my concerns. I also appreciate the way he communicates with you before and after surgery providing personal care. I would highly recommend him when a Nerosurgeon is needed and consider him the best in the business.
in Cullman, AL |
Dr. Dixit is a very thorough specialist, who through his technology portal, follows up on progress after surgery. He can be a little short on explanation before surgery so you need to ask any questions you may have. Very please with the surgery outcome. I had a double lumbar disectomy.
in Killen, AL |
Everything from my initial request for a visit to follow ups after my surgery has been excellent! No long wait times, no confusion, and no problems. Dr. Dixit is very pleasant and has always kept me fully informed. Sharon, my wife has commented several times to me and to friends on how good he has been to tell us everything we needed to know before we asked. His nursing staff is great. Meredith and Krystel are professional, competent, courteous and a pleasure to be around. Great experience!
in Athens, AL |
Everything was great! He nailed the diagnosis on the first try! He was very confident and also took time to make sure I understood what was going on, what my options were, his recommendation, and what to expect in the future! After that, he took time to ask and answer my questions. Amazing experience! I recommend Dr. Dixit to everyone!

in Madison , AL |
Dr. Dixit was very professional and very knowledgeable along side of having a great attitude and personality. It felt great to go into his office, while in a lot of pain, and see Dr. Dixit with a big smile on his face and very eager to help me with my problem. You can really tell that this man loves his job and loves helping people. Another great point about Dr. Dixit is that he try's to avoid surgical procedures. I have already recommended three people to Dr. Dixit. Thanks a lot Doctor!

I had pain and numbness in my arm and hand for about a year. I then started to have pain in my shoulder. I was told by many doctors that it was a pinched nerve. After a solid year of pain and feeling like I was being dramatic, I went to see Dr. Dixit. He explained that I had a severe herniated disc. He did surgery and I've been pain free since surgery day. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Dixit. He and his staff are top notch!

I was having pain in my lower back my right leg going numb down to my toes . Going to work everyday and experiencing a lot of pain. I Went to see Dr Dixit and he ordered a shot in my back which helped just a little but after a few weeks decided that we had no choice but to do surgery. After the surgery no pain in my lower back and no pain or numbness in my right leg . You just don't know how appreciative I am to be able to stand and walk without pain . I would highly recommend Dr. Dixit .

I've had 2 cervical surgeries, multiple office visits, and physical therapy. I've had concerns and questions, through this all I've been reassured and questions answered. Dr Dixit is the ve VERY BEST, the BESTEST of the BEST!!! I have berm in the medical field for 23 years and I can honestly say there are very few doctors at Dr Dixit level.

in Antioch, TN |

Westland, MI |
He was very comforting before he did my chiari decompression surgery.
in Smyrna, TN |
Dr. Dixit shows that he cares about getting his patients the relief they need from the pain they are suffering.
in Nashville |
As far as personal, explaining the condition and trying to help after things went wrong? Excellent. As far as the necessity of doing the procedure; that remains in question, and the symptoms I was supposed to have, I didn't have, I now have. So as far as results go? Not so good,well, as of NOW. I understand every time you enter the human body there are risks, but almost 3 months with me in worse shape in many ways: even now. Well, I do wonder if we hadn't done this if it would have been best.
in Hermitage tn |
Very attentive, knowledgeable responsive

Nashville, TN |
While I did not actually spend much time with Dr. Dixit, the time I did have face to face with him was informative and comforting. He has an excellent and skilled team and I felt very involved in my treatment throughout.
in Old Hickory, TN |
Dr Dixit was very through. He looked at all my x-rays and reports prior to seeing me and basically told me symptoms I was having. He also made me aware of another problem, that was more severe, I didn't even know about. 1st surgery experience with Dr Dixit was excellent. I feel very confident in doing my next surgery in 3 mos. Amy and the rest of the staff are very kind and professional.

LaVergne |
I was a bit in the nervous side when I found I need to see a surgeon but after ten minutes with the staff I was put completely at ease! Dr.Dixit and his staff have been so amazing and even helped when I had a few small issues with the recommending doctor. Before I had the surgery they were on top of things and making sure I was aware of every small detail before hand. I even had a few insurance hold ups and the office managed to get things worked out so I could still get my surgery. AMAZING!
New York, NY |
Dr. Dixit and his staff are wonderful. They helped me so much with my neck, I would reccomend them to any one.
